Connecting in Paris: First GICA Annual Meeting
Nearly 150 attendees working in infrastructure connectivity-related sectors gathered in Paris 25 – 26 January 2018 for the first GICA Annual Meeting, held at the OECD Headquarters.
Co-organized by the Global Infrastructure Connectivity Alliance (GICA), the World Bank, and the OECD, the event brought together policy makers and practitioners participating in the GICA to discuss the state of play in global connectivity, innovative practices and the outlook for connectivity. The event provided an opportunity for GICA members to share their latest research and findings and define new areas of cooperation based on identified gaps.
In addition to the world’s largest institutional investors, attendees included senior government representatives from OECD and developing countries, regulators, and other industry participants.
